Baha’i Blog’s “Studio Sessions” is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.
In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Johannesburg, South Africa with Dominique Sylvester who sings “I Repair for Refuge” from the Writings of the Bab.
This song was filmed and recorded in Johannesburg, South Africa, September 2017.
Lyrics & Quote
O Lord! Unto Thee I repair for refuge, and toward all Thy signs I set my heart.The Bab
O Lord! Whether traveling or at home, and in my occupation or in my work, I place my whole trust in Thee.
Grant me then Thy sufficing help so as to make me independent of all things, O Thou Who art unsurpassed in Thy mercy!
Bestow upon me my portion, O Lord, as Thou pleasest, and cause me to be satisfied with whatsoever Thou hast ordained for me.
Thine is the absolute authority to command.
Pluck Chords: Verse: G maj, G maj/B, Cmaj7, G maj Chorus: A min, G maj/B, A min, G maj O Lord! Unto Thee I repair for refuge and toward all Thy signs I set my heart. O Lord! Whether travelling or at home and in my occupation or in my work, I place my whole trust in thee. X2
